Japan's Nikkei rose on Thursday morning driven by gains in index-heavyweight SoftBank Group while investors bought futures as global risk issues such as a no-deal Brexit receded.

The Nikkei share average rose 0.7 percent to 21,431.28 by the midmorning break after surging to 21,522.75 earlier. It fell 1 percent the previous day.

SoftBank Group Corp soared 4.6 percent to 11,160 yen, the highest since early October fuelled by news it is mulling an investment in Uber’s self-driving unit. It added 45 hefty positive points to the Nikkei index.
